Oh Dude, I Am So Baked Right Now!

“Whoa, man… that was some righteous catnip, dude.  Do we have any more, like, Doritos or anything?”

Actually, I'm steamed, but, like, I'm too fried to care.

Like, thanks for the, uh,  picture and stuff, Diane D.



  1. Maybe the kitty’s just tired, and wants a steam bath.

  2. mervtheflamingo says:

    Rice Kitty! (isn’t that a rice maker?) or a cavernous CD player?

  3. kibblenibble says:

    Caturday BBQ!

  4. That is some serious tear duct action.

  5. Anonymous Coward says:


    Now that’s either a really small cat or a monstrous rice maker. Or both.

    One thing is for sure & this picture confirms it: cats can truly sleep anywhere.


  6. Happiness is a warm kitteh.

  7. Now my cats are demanding that premo nip…they want to know why they don’t get it yet. I tried to explains, its only available overseas…right? lol

  8. sticky icky magical. says:

    mellow man. mel-low.

  9. Actually it’s a small rice cooker, so kitteh’s right, he’s more steamed than baked or fried.

  10. So this is what Zojirushi means when they say their rice cookers offer “fuzzy logic” technology.

  11. heeey, I have the same rice maker, only in Engrish!

    I wish my rice came out looking that cute!! Alas.

  12. Haha Chanpon, I wanted to make a fuzzy logic joke, but my brains were a little too… well, fuzzy 😛

  13. mervtheflamingo says:

    Cat in rice cooker…appears to be a set up for inappropriate, politically incorrect cat-as-main dish in Asian cuisine joke. I’ll leave it at that.

  14. Cat’s in the kettle

    Did you ever think, when you eat Chinese
    It ain’t pork or chicken but a fat siamese?
    Yet the food tastes great, so you don’t complain.
    But that’s not chicken in your chicken chow mein.
    Seems to me I ordered sweet-and-sour pork
    But Garfield’s on my fork.
    He’s purrin’ here on my fork.

    There’s a cat in the kettle at the Peking Moon
    The place that I eat every day at noon.
    They can feed you cat and you’ll never know
    Once they wrap it up in dough, boys:
    They fry it real crisp in dough.

    Chou Lin asked if I wanted more
    As he was dialin’ up his buddy at the old pet store.
    I said “Not today. I lost my appetite.
    “There’s two cats in my belly and they want to fight.”
    I was suckin’ on a Rolaid and a Tums or two
    When I swear I heard it mew, boys:
    And that is when I knew…

    There’s a cat in the kettle at the Peking Moon
    I think I gotta stop eatin’ there at noon.
    They say that it’s beef or fish or pork
    But it’s purrin’ there on my fork.
    There’s a hair-ball on my fork.

  15. wannadance says:

    are you serious!!! you’d have to be sifting for seeds to find a negative ‘joke’ in there.

    many many bad words of disgust…

  16. wannadance says:

    no wait: i was disgusted by the person who was starting to nuff.

    the song is great, though, although poor jasmine ran in the other room…

    if we cannot be irreverent and outrageous, then i am putting myself in a waffle iron or something….

    hmmmmm, migraine meds affecting my affect.

  17. aw, man… kitteh’s bogarting the vaporizer again. no fair.

  18. So does the short grain setting work for shorthairs and the long grain for longhairs?

  19. @anon….We are not worthy! LOL!!!!

  20. totalee puppy says:

    A Rice/Cat Steamer to anon.
    for an awesome song.

  21. Steamed tabbico! (stripey calico)

    She does look baked. Better give her some of the rice to assuage the munchies.

  22. Wannadance, your comments are cool. Sorry to hear you are having
    migraine. You’re a tough
    lady, but it must be tough times in Waffle City. Just
    to say that someone cares–
    even if that someone is a

  23. that’s a huge paw on that small kitty.

  24. hamster-on-rye says:

    You can use the steamed rice to make tasty nip-a-
    nori sushi roll. Cats will love you.

  25. So…should I get out the
    Doritos? I’ve got nip dip
    for kittehs.

  26. I have the exact same model of rice cooker – the kitteh must be pretty little, as my kitten is way too big for the bowl!

  27. temperance says:

    i have a hello kitty rice cooker, but my cat has never shown any interest in it.

  28. The kitten has the same contented look, down to the sleepy eye look my dog gets when he’s snuggled in with me or mom in “his” chair. That is one very adorable kitten and I love her coloring. By the way, I thought it was a bread machine, not a rice cooker. I don’t quite know what rice cookers really look like. Never needed to get one.

  29. @Cachorro;
    No one who come to CO in a nobody. We all somebodys here, cute picture lovers.

    @Wannadance, I to hope you migraine goes away soon, they are no fun.

  30. LOL I thought it was a bread maker and was gonna make a kitty Loaf joke
    Kitty herb loaf

  31. A haiku for Rice Cooker Kitty:

    The cat, a dreamer,
    Sleeps calmly in a steamer
    While we go hungry

  32. kibblenibble says:

    Dreamer: NICE haiku! I once wrote one for my friend’s cat, when I picked her up from getting spayed at the kitty clinic:

    Warm, soft, sleeping cat
    Pillowcased weight in my lap

  33. Ugh, no, the anon song is not cool. It’s racist. The ‘asians eat cats’ thing isn’t even clever or new or relevant. Not charming.

  34. berthaservant says:

    Kitteh has a prescription, I’m sure. This is perfectly legal. Nothing to see here. (nomming on stoned cat toebeans)

  35. omg. OMGOMG

    i have that same rice cooker.

    OMG x3

  36. I generally find that song racist and annoying, but I gotta admit, this was definitely the right venue for it! 🙂 I laughed.

  37. I only eat shrimp dishes at chinese restaurants.

  38. Hahahaha, jenjen!

  39. I’m with LJ. The “Asians eat cats” thing is xenophobic at best.

  40. mervtheflamingo says:

    it wasn’t a nuff. It was an observation, meant to be a witty observation without making a racist joke. That is all.

    I think the picture is adorable.

  41. Cambridge Rat Mom says:

    Hmm, what’s that delicious spice you’ve added to the rice? Oh, cat hair, how delicious.

  42. Just last night I was thinking about getting a rice cooker, but decided I didn’t need one. Now I’m not so sure.

  43. I have a feeling that that kitty is being lulled to sleep by twinkle twinkle little star, if that’s anything like my ricemaker.

  44. @ stick: your rice cooker plays “Twinkle twinkle?” WOW!!! None of my appliances sings to me (unless the radio counts as an appliance…). Until now, I never realized how DEPRIVED I have been all these years.

  45. Silent Meow says:

    I need to check my ricemaker to see if there is a kitty in there.

  46. How many cups of rice must I had to achieve the right texture of kitteh?

  47. yea, I have a different model of the Zojirushi rice maker. It plays a little tune when you start it and when it’s done. Totally cute!

  48. *add, not had… where are those Doritos????

  49. I usually have special fried rice, perhaps I’ll ask for kitteh rice next time.

  50. That homegrown stuff really hits the spot.

  51. /puff

  52. No meal is complete without cat hair.

  53. …or Corgi hair.

  54. Do like photos in my cookbooks, and this one demonstrates the last step for perfect basmati is always fluff it, erm, if it will let you.

  55. That reminds me of a cat I know who likes to sit in the dishwasher while it’s being filled or emptied.

  56. PS Has anyone else found the meerkat of their dreams on Compare-the-Meerkat? I found one that “can fold self into origami swan and pick nose with tail while achieving higher state of bendy-ness.”

  57. kibblenibble says:

    Ginger: My Isabella sits on the door and watches carefully while I’m loading or unloading it. I always tell her she’s the supervisor, making sure that I do it right! 🙂

  58. “why cat hair, how delicious”


  59. My bunny leaves hair wherever he goes, but is always careful to avoid the kitchen.

  60. !!!

    *goes and peeks in her rice cooker*

    Mine’s busted 😦

  61. Gail (the first one) says:

    @kibblenibble: I am always closely observed while I make coffee. After all this time, you’d think I’d have woken up to fresh coffee…..

    Speaking of cats doing cute things….I took my nieces to see the “Circus Cats of Chicago” in performance this afternoon! Lots of jumping through hoops, walking a balance beam, etc. The show was capped off by a performance by “The Rock Cats”; a white one on the guitar, a floofster greyish one playing drums and a black one playing piano! They actually did play the instruments!!!! Apparently, they insist on playing only original compositions. All *very* entertaining and fun!!!

  62. Wok the dog,
    Steam the kitteh…

  63. looks like my zojirushi rice maker.


  64. Sometimes I’m a little baked,
    sometimes, kinda steamed.
    Now and then I need a break,
    Chillin’ and splayin’ mah toebeans.

  65. Mmm. Nothing like a steaming hot plate of rice and fleas.

  66. wannadance says:

    @kittienibble: ‘lucy’ is an extremely beautiful haiku, imho.
    thank you so much for posting it…

    i gotta find out exactly what a meerkat is, that it can pick its nose. remarkable…

    thanks to all for migraine sympathy. sucko sucko but gone now….

    gotta go out and buy ’31 pounds of brown sugar and a pack of camels…’..

  67. No camels-no camels, wannadance. I just decided not to purchase and eat a Burger King Bacon Cheeseburger-I expect the same behavior from you, young lady! No, not rational, but ‘pep talks’ seldom are!
    Smoking is awful for you! C’mon, think healthy!

  68. Break out the bonito flakes and wake up that flavor!!

  69. @katrina, i think it’s old carlin or cheech and chong…

    old stoner humor.

    old but never a stoner, alas.

    don’t skip cheeseburgers, damn, girl. life is short. eat one!! or nine!! you’ll only live about 16 minutes longer if you do skip it…

    all the years i worked in medicine i never heard one single old dying person say ‘am so glad i ate only celery and styrofoam.’
    they all say: ‘wish i’d eaten more steaks and chocolate…’

  70. AAAAAhhhhhhh, but I didn’t not have “Eater’s Remorse”and neither do I have to work off the calories, and I am feeling so much better to have eaten my dinner actually hungry. Every tense of activity satisfied by not eating that juicy, oh, stop now….I need it like a whole in my head.
    Thank you for your caring, wannadance, it was very kind of you. I hope you are feeling well. Have a wonderful day.

    I’m so glad you don’t smoke. Sorry i didn’t get the reference, some things just fly on by me….

  71. I did not have “Eater’s Remorse”, no double negative intended. Arrgh. (no pirate humor intended either.)

  72. BlackKittiesRmyfriends says:

    awww that is cute!!!
